In 2009, HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd) of India and United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) / Ilyushin of Russia announced a formal joint venture to design, develop, and produce a new turbofan-powered, medium-class airlifter as a successor to the aging lines of military transports in service with air services of both powers. The aircraft was designated the "IL-214 MTA" (Multirole Transport Aircraft) and was set to feature all-modern systems, capabilities, and construction. However, this deal has since fallen through as of early-2016 to which it was subsequently announced that India would no longer be involved in the new Ilyushin project. Instead, UAC is pursuing the venture on its own under the "IL-276" designation and this aircraft is targeted at the Russian Air Force to serve as a "bridge" design between its re-engined fleet of IL-76 heavy lifters and its more modest IL-112V series transports.

As it stands (2018), the IL-276 will be crewed by three personnel to include two pilots (seated side-by-side in the cockpit) and a mission engineer / loadmaster. The aircraft will sport a payload capacity of up to 44,000lb and have the capability to airlift up to 150 personnel as well as medical litters with support staff and conventional cargo palettes over range. Power will come from 2 x Aviadvigatel PD-14M turbofan engines rated at 34,392lb of thrust each unit and these are featured under each wing mainplane - the mainplanes high-mounted along the fuselage sides for excellent ground clearance. A Multhopp "T-style" tail unit will be used at the empennage while the flight deck will take its traditional placement overlooking a short nosecone. A powered cargo ramp at the rear will be set underneath the tail unit in the usual way - offering unfettered access to the hold within. Dimensions currently (2018) include a running length of 123.7 feet, a wingspan of 116.5 feet, and a height up to 42.5 feet. Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) is set to become 158,733lb. Estimated performance specifications include a maximum speed of 540 miles per hour with a cruising speed of 500 miles per hour. Range is planned to reach out to 1,245 miles with ferry ranges out to 4,535 miles. The aircraft's service ceiling is 43,000 feet.

A first-flight of a prototype IL-276 form is planned for sometime in 2023 with deliveries to the Russian Air Force tentatively scheduled for 2025.
